10 Cane Rum anyone tried it.
« on: November 13, 2009, 11:42:36 AM »
My vital supplies have run low and I came across 10 Cane in a liquor store here in Charlotte but I've never heard of it.  I went to their website to check it out and it doesn't look like a local brand (they described Trinidad as having "rich volcanic soil" ???)

Anyone tried it?  Is it any good?

*EDIT*
Upon further review it looks like it's more like cachaca than rum so I guess my search continues..........

boy I frighten for these people rum oui. I bought a bottle some time ago that titled itself as rum. Took a shot and gagged. It tasted the way one would imagine rancid koolaid sweetened with aspartame might taste. Couldn't even say I would save it to make cake. Steupse  >:(
I like to have a bottle of rum in the house (for medicinal poiposes eh).

Happy hunting. Let me know what you find.

I t looks like I'll have to get my rum online.  Mecklenburg ABC are the only ones allowed to sell liquor in Charlotte and they don't carry anything Trini (or Guyanese) and I'm not a fan of Appleton.

The thing is that the online stores charge a hefty shipping charge for the first item but very little for subsequent additions so you really have to buy a few bottles for it to make sense.

Times like this make me feel like I'm living in the boonies :-\

They have no clue what to do with me and my lil family.
But I am pleased to report the stock Carib and Red Stripe in the local booze shop in the "Exotic Ales" section... ;D

Panther yuh local liquor store won't order it for you? I used to do that when i was upstate NY..Believe me all they kno about as rum there is capt morgan. I became friends with the liquor store owner and he happily ordered the El Do for me and even bought some for himself. And the shipping wasn't terrible. Not much more than a bottle would normally cost in the store, plus i knew i was getting good rum

A few years ago I went to launching of it at the TT consulate in NY, a brederin had extra tickets and hook meh up.  Big bashment, Alloes and others performed.  Met a TT exec w/Moet Hennessy who indicated the kickbacks to Angostura were minimal, I thought to myself what awful business planning, at least according to what she said.  The rum I thought tasted more like a scotch, which for me is just fine, gave up rum since teenage years and battin scotch since den

That 10 cane is pure toots! A pardna here introduced me to the 15 yr Eldo.. thing almost as smooth as a good scotch.

Doh sleep on some of the rum that comes out of Central America. Was at Chaud last month and was lucky enough to sample some. After that tasting I picked up a bottle of Flor de Cana 18 Years Old Centenario (Gold), which I would recommend as a good starting point as far as Central American rum goes.

BTW, though the bottle pretty, keep away from the Butterfly Collection by Angostura. Dais all it is... a collection to display in your bar.

If you're into rum liqueurs let me know and I'll make a couple recommendations.

didn't even know they had a 25. I've had the 21, but still find that for the price difference the 15 holds it own. I'll now be on the lookout for the 25.

doh worry with Capo.. he nickname is bayrum.
